As new patterns emerge in the lives of young adults, parents find that their grown children have bigger problems than they did just a few years ago.How to Raise Your Adult Children is a manual for anxious moms and dads. Whether confronting the question of setting a curfew for a college kid at home or paying for a forty-year-old daughter's wedding, two "been there, done that" moms give advice with an edge on a variety of emotionally and financially perilous situations, including:-Your kid needs money-your money-Your kid moves back home and stays home-You know your child should not marry his or her significant other-Your big children keep dumping their little children on youCombining the wit of Emmy Award-winning writer Gail Parent and the insight of psychotherapist Susan Ende, this book answers questions most parents never imagined they would have to ask.
